EXTENDED ACCESS CLINICS
 

Extended Access evening and weekend appointments now available

Patients can now see a local GP, Physio and Phlebotomist for routine appointments on weekday evenings and at weekends. Pre-bookable and on-the-day appointments are available between 6.30pm and 8.30pm each weekday, with additional slots available on Saturdays and Sundays between 8.45am and 5.15pm.

Appointments for all three services are available for any Greater Huddersfield patient in the Primary Care Centre hub at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and some physio appointments are also available in Holmfirth and Armitage Bridge.

How to book an evening or weekend appointment at the HUB:

You can also book an evening or weekend appointment by ringing the practice on: 01484 651622/666050. If you need to book an appointment when the practice is closed then you can ring the free NHS 111 phone line out of normal working hours and they will book an appointment for you if appropriate.

Specific or additional opening times for Extended Access Services over the Christmas and New Year period will be shared with practices directly by Local Care Direct/MHH.

Repeat Prescriptions 

Requests can be made in one of the following ways:

  • Put it in writing and hand it in or post it to us at the surgery. If you would like the prescription sent back to you by post please provide a stamped addressed envelope.
  • From the 1st December 2017 telephone requests will only be taken between the hours of 10-12.
  • Request your repeat prescription online via the link at the top of this page. This is easy to do, just provide the reception staff with some form of photo ID and you will be issued with a password.

Please note, under 16 year olds are NOT allowed to collect prescriptions.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Generic Drugs

All medicines have more than one name; the name of the active drug (the generic name) and a name given to it by the company that makes the particular brand (the trade name). In terms of medical effectiveness there is no difference between drugs with different trade names. At the surgery we usually issue prescriptions using the generic name. That way if a pharmacy has trouble getting hold of a particular brand (say because the company stops making it) they can supply a different manufacturer's version of the same drug. If you have doubt whether you have been given the right medication, then please ask your pharmacist or GP to confirm it is correct.
